When booking with us, there are usually three photography and/or videography elements that go into each and every Bar & Bat Mitzvah: the casual shoot, the temple shoot, and the party! Even though we are great together, our packages can be made to exclude videography or photography, or any of the elements noted above. We understand that you may only need one of our services!
The casual shoots are usually shot outdoors and are typically only photographed by me, Mariann, as there is no video element but John does come along to assist. The pictures taken during the casual shoot are solo portraits of the Bat Mitzvah girl or the Bar Mitzvah boy, as this is a great way to get them comfortable in front of the camera before their big day. Feel free to bring along anything you'd like to add to the photos that helps showcase your child's personality/interests! For example, some families bring their dogs or some kids bring along sports gear! The casual shoot photos are often used for poster boards and the slideshows at the party.
The temple shoots are typically shot at the family's selected synagogue. The temple shoots are typically captured by both of us, John (video) and Mariann (photo). If you would like exclude photo or video, let us know! Aside from photos taken throughout the temple service, portraits of your son or daughter and family portraits, are taken before or after the service.
Finally, it's party time! The party is always shot at the chosen venue and is typically captured by both of us. The only thing left to do is have an awesome time!
Aside from capturing your special day with timeless photography and/or videography, we can help you with any other wedding information you might need. Whether you’re looking for a great live band or DJ, the perfect venue, or party decorators, we have endless suggestions.
